"The posting of Womb’s track from a gig in London “My Meat Is Bigger Than Yours” gives the opportunity to more closely listen to what they are about. I guess this is improv in the traditional sense of the form with a mantra like attention to the soundscape and the ditching of conventional “rock” structures to create work in the spirit of say Faust, and to some degree Gong – without the pixies and the flying tea-pots mind you. I like the way the insistent rhythmic core created a sort of structure for the guitars and the voice to weave in and out of. Not sure it’s something I could play on the radio but I like listening to it."
